Shopping for window treatments can be overwhelming, especially if you’re not sure which style will fit your needs best. Of course, part of narrowing down your search is understanding the look you like—after all, there’s no point in buying a treatment if you ultimately won’t like how it will look in your window.
At Windows & More here in the Lake Ozark area, we understand that feeling of being overwhelmed and want to help our customers as much as possible in narrowing down their options. To that end, we hope this blog post can give some good pointers. Read on, and for more specific info for your particular situation, be sure to contact one of our representatives today.
Consider the Type of Function It Should Serve
Functionality is definitely important. Some treatments work better than others when it comes to privacy versus view-through. Others function best in protecting from harmful UV rays or in light control. Some are great at helping with energy efficiency. And others are best simply to spice up the interior design of a room. Determining your goals for your window will narrow your selection.
Think About How You’d Like to Control Light
With many shades, controlling light is all about how much of the shade covers the opening at any given time—you lift or lower it to determine the amount of light in a room. With some shades, you’re not limited to just controlling it from the bottom; you might have the option of top-down/bottom-up operation, which allows you raise and lower the shade from the top as well. With blinds and shutters, you control the incoming light by tilting the product’s vanes to adjust natural light.
Is Your Window Standard?
Windows come in all sizes, from standard to specialty shapes. Some windows need horizontal treatments while others do better with vertical treatments. For flexibility with specialty shapes, look to honeycomb shades, wood blinds, or shutters. For great options for sliders or walls of windows, consider Duette® Vertiglide™ Honeycomb Shades or Luminette® Privacy Sheers.
